The Alzheimer s Advisor

For anyone who has ever cared for a person with Alzheimer’s, coping with the emotional, financial, and day-to-day issues can be grueling. While many people are aware of the physical effects of this disease, very few know how to handle the practical issues that can make dealing with a loved one or patient with Alzheimer’s that much more difficult. In The Alzheimer's Advisor, Vaughn E. James offers an empathetic and straightforward guide to the legal and ethical dilemmas associated with this disorder. Using real-life situations, the author offers invaluable advice on such topics as: estate planning • the emotional issues of caring for a patient with Alzheimer’s • how to cope with the cost of care • living wills, power of attorney, and guardian­­ship • treatment and diagnosis • finding the right lawyer and paying for the cost of legal help • legal issues for the mobile Alzheimer’s patient. From recognizing the early signs of the disease to understanding the legal implications, this is the one book that will enable caregivers, health-care practitioners, and family members to protect themselves and their loved ones.
